12oz can poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy brown with a lingering one-finger head
S: Bread, toasted wheat and caramel
T: Matches the nose. Very malty and a fair amount of sweetness from the malt/caramel notes
M: Medium-bodied, fairly sweet
O: The nose is the best part. This would be pretty good except for my palate the sweetness is out of balance

Poured from a 12 oz can into a clear glass mug. Canned on 04/25/14 on bottom of can. Received from good friend Erinn on a recent trip through Charlottesville -- thanks bud.

A: Oddly not really brown but more os a darker amber with nice 1-finger off-white head with average retention and an abbreviated collar of lacing around the top of the pour.

S: Despite its amber appearance, the roastiness and chocolate notes of a brown ale are in there coupled with a pretty stout hops presence, mainly earthy, herbal, and light orange citrus notes. The malt backbone is bready with a chocolate rye toast crust aroma. No real yeast aromas.

T: I like the flavor of this beer although the alcohol is a bit too obvious. The malt is the main performer, bringing more of that dark toast/bread crust flavor which is moved by the chocolate and light roasted notes. THe hops then create an interesting herbal and orange/grapefruit citrus counterbalance in the finish. Mild-to-moderate bitterness and a hint of alcohol burn on the way down.

M: I like the mouthfeel of this beer -- it is creamy and layering without seeming heavy or cloying and it finishes pretty dry for the heft. The body is medium as is the carbonation.

O: Red Hare Watership Brown is a pretty good American brown ale but I think it would be even better if the alcohol were ramped down about 1.5-2% with a nice high mash temp to keep the same dextrinous feel.
